I live in a city where on any given night there are hundreds, if not thousands of cocktail parties I could attend. But even if I had the desire and the invitations to go to every single one, it would be physically impossible.
So I make decisions.
Maybe I'll seek someone out because I heard something about them that interested me and wanted to meet them.
Perhaps I already know them and want to reconnect.
A conversation could start over a shared like of that last hors d’oeurve tray with the fabulous crab cakes that just went by.
Maybe we'll start talking because I overheard their conversation and wanted to join in.
Sometimes it's just a look across the room that tells me I want to meet that person.
Other times that person is the one approaching and making the decision.
The same choices hold true when it comes to online social networks.
To connect humans with humans.
